Brad Pitt allegedly waited for the right moment to pursue Emily Ratajkowski.

Following reports of Pitt and Ratajkowski’s dating rumors, Hollywood may soon have a new power couple. The news comes as the actor is embroiled in a legal battle with Angelina Jolie, and Ratajkowski’s ex-husband, Ben Affleck, married Jennifer Lopez.

Although the news broke recently, it turned out that the “Ad Astra” actor had to wait a long time before the “secret dates” began.

According to a source quoted in OK! Magazine, Jolie’s estranged husband has been smitten with the model since they met two years ago.

The source said:

“Brad was crushing on Emily at the 2020 Vanity Fair Oscar party. They weren’t in a private area or anything like that, but they did talk with friends around.”

According to the insider, the actor couldn’t take his first steps because Ratajkowski was still married to Sebastian Bear-McClard at the time.

Pitt reportedly respected her happiness with her husband.

However, after the couple divorced, he finally pursued her by asking her out. Ratajkowski, on the other hand, said yes because she had always thought he was cute.

Despite the speculation, Pitt’s representatives have already denied the rumor, according to the magazine.

Nonetheless, as the two were spotted in Paris, the public insisted on their relationship. In New York City, they were also seen holding hands.

Even though Pitt is free to date anyone, it appears that the actor has yet to find time to date anyone due to his recent legal issues.

Aside from the Chateau Miraval lawsuit, the actor’s problematic behavior was highlighted in a newly-discovered filing in which Jolie sued the FBI for failing to arrest her then-husband after the infamous plane fight.

According to The Wrap, Puck News’ Eriq Gardner shared a copy of the document in which Jolie revealed to an FBI agent that he “physically and verbally assaulted” her and their children during the incident.

Following Hurricane Katrina, Pitt and his foundation had to deal with legal issues relating to their “horrible project.” Unfortunately, the houses had defective designs and poor construction practices, which resulted in a breach of contract and fraud.

After years of litigation, both parties agreed to a preliminary settlement of $20.5 million. Global Greens also offered assistance and support to the Lower Ninth families.
